Michael grew up in Haverhill, MA prior to starting at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where he received a BS in Biology. During his time at UMass, he was team captain and an 800-meter runner for their Division 1 Track and Field Program. Outside of the classroom, Michael acted as a technician in the emergency room, and was a youth basketball coach at the local YMCA. Prior to starting medical school, Michael lived in Boston for three years, completing a research internship at Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and working as medical assistant to the Team Physician for Boston College Athletics. During medical school, he was affiliated with Boston Children’s Sports Division and Stanford University’s SUNSPORTS Group after receiving UNECOM’S Morgane Research Fellowship, studying youth sport public health patterns and sun-protective practices in NCAA athletes. Michael was drawn to Brown University’s Pediatrics Residency for the congeniality of the staff & co-residents, focus on resident well-being, diversity of the patient population, high level of supervised-autonomy, wide-variety of specialty teams, and the affiliations with Brown University and Providence College athletics, all culminating to help foster his career goals of helping pediatric patients with chronic disease return to sport and improving low-income access to sport. Outside of the hospital, Michael loves to spend time with his niece and nephew, snowboarding, the Patriots, fiction books, March Madness, spending time on the water, and cinema
